Why our UK ocean service is #1

  • No co-loading – ocean consolidations directly controlled and operated by Universal Logistics, the better option because third parties can no longer delay or bump your freight
  • The dependability of scheduled departures 51 weeks a year (excluding Christmas and New Year's week)
  • Unlike most competitors, we operate receiving hubs in the north (Manchester) and the south (London), plus receiving depots in Newcastle, Leeds and Bristol
  • Extended cut-off times, which means your suppliers have more time to meet sailing dates
  • An FMC licensed office in Buffalo, NY, the gateway for shipments to New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania
